    I am currently in year 12 and at our school, we have been thinking about universities and what we want to do at university.
    Now, that's mostly where my problems lie.

    I was wondering which universities do not care much about GCSE results, even though I did pass all my GCSE's (2As, 6Bs, and 3Cs). And if any of those universities were Russell groups. And if so, could you tell me them.

    Also I every time I think about university it gets me stressed beyond belief because I feel as though universities will not look too highly on my application because of my GCSE results and my chosen A-levels (which are Geography, Business, Government & Politics and Ancient History).

    Advice and help please.

    Most unis (in my experience) don't really care about GCSE's too much, as long as you've passed Maths and English (and possibly Science, depending on the course you apply to).
    Even if they did, your GCSE's aren't bad, I got about the same and all the unis I applied for have offered me a place so I wouldn't worry

    I also considered applying for Law, but chose Business Management and Marketing instead. My extracurricular activities were just as important as my grades, but I'd like to say these activities show your potential the most, as well as your personality.

    That's why you should get involved as much as you can: volunteer, go to businesses conferences, be an active member of the student council, lead projects through which you can show a variety of skills and abilities.

    Take up a sport. A sport shows that you know how to play as a team member and you value time management, you know how to organize your schedule properly.

    They don't care about GCSE as long as you have got a C in English and Maths. I have got a offer from a UK top 20 uni and at GCSE i only got B's and C's.
